Welcome!


YES! You are the right page! I just have a new name! :) After realizing that I do more than just scrapbooking, I've decided to change the name and will be changing the look.. I'd do a whole new blog but I'd hate to have to start all over.
Here you will find scrapbooking ideas. There's a ton of older posts that used the Cricut, but lately I haven't been using it much and well, my sewing machine is gaining more miles by the day.

Altered Tin

Here is a tin that I altered for a prize on my Bingo Group! June was our Winner that month, and the theme was cards, with a bonus of an altered tin. So I decorated the tin, and filled it with the cards that the other members had sent in as their contribution to the prize pot.




Target $1 spot for the brads, the flowers were a gift and I can't remember what brand. The butterfly border was plain silver, and then I used my alcohol inks to color it.


This was cut from Walk in my Garden - the flower pot - and then embossed with "traffic jam" I then used Primas as the flowers.



This was a rustic metal piece that I found in my stash... I covered it in clear ink and poured clear embossing powder on it, and then I used my heat emobssing gun on it

I love this tin. I may have to do some of these when my Master Gardener group has our spring plant sale. We are trying to plan a really big group bus tour and we have already been told to start thinking about our donations for the sale.
